HC Deb 13 May 1925 vol 183 c1831
12. Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

asked the First, Lord of the Admiralty whether the Admiralty yacht "Enchantress" is now in commission; why she was not used for the recent official visit, of certain members of the Board to Malta: and to what use is it intended to put her during the rest of this year?

Commander FANSHAWE

Is it not a fact that if this yacht had been employed on these duties we should not have had the hon. and gallant Gentleman's question, causing extra expense?


No, Sir. The yacht has not been in commission since she was paid off last August. The recent Board visit to Malta was conveniently carried out without the expense of sending her to the Mediterranean. Nothing has as yet been arranged for her use during the rest of the year

Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY

In that case, if it is not to be used and was not in use for the Malta visit, why not give it up altogether and save the expense


I said that no decision had yet been made
